Wow, what a great surprise to see 'Ma'a al-Fidda' make the list! One of the most utterly heart-wrenching and powerful films I have seen. A truly hard film to watch but a masterpiece of collaborative documentary film-making. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffDBsSPLKWM

My thoughts immediately after seeing the film two years ago (copy and pasted from the CFB):

One gets the sense that Mohammed is a deeply humanistic, benevolent, and insightful man. The ways in which people are swept up in constricting dichotomies that reinforce divisions and perpetuate the cycles of existence are subtly and unforgettably dealt with in 'Khutwa Khutwa' and this compassionate outlook is even evident in the shatteringly powerful and profoundly moving 'Ma'a al-Fidda', as this exiled son watches from afar, mourns, and assembles a portrait in harrowing images of his fragmented land. This collaboration with the extraordinarily brave Wiam Simav Bedirxan who is the embodiment of hope in a landscape of desolation and mutilation is probably one of the toughest-to-watch films I have ever entered into but there is a poetry (Simav means ''silvered water'' in Kurdish and the recurring focus on trickles of silvery water serves as a powerful and haunting embracing of the potential for revitalisation in even the most unfathomably traumatic situations) and humanity evident in the empathetic assembling of images of emptiness and suffering that touches one's heart and makes one weep for the good that exists in the hearts of people in such horrifying circumstances. The soft, evocative tones of Bedirxan as she surveys the destruction of Homs and films it all imparted a human dignity and wisdom that seems to be so in fitting with the astute observations of 'Khutwa Khutwa'. Two films that I will never forget.
That's all, folks!

I've seen it a few months ago and I already don't remember what happened there. So I guess it's alright to use this screenshot. :lol:

Reise der Hoffnung was the Swiss entry in the current World Cup. I expected more voters here. Did people leave it out of their list, because it is Swiss? I thought it was Turkish enough to include it.

I decided against including it on these grounds but I very nearly included it. A Swiss director was the factor that swayed me.

Didn't watch it myself - I haven't been participating in the WC but it's a film I've known about for a long time and want to watch at some point - as I've probably shown before, I tend to be something of a purist when it comes to country polls - at least if there are enough "pure" films from a country to watch. Same reason why I didn't even consider watching any of Fatih Akin's films for the challenge, and tend to be careful about listing such problematic films on my poll responses.

could you insert a space between title and (year, director)?

Country could also be nice, but there is a lot of information there already. I'll just check the links.

There already is. The weird thing is, if I add another, it doesn't change at all. I already tried.
Just take a look at the code here. This has two spaces after the AKA-title:

Country is not in the iCM- or IMDb-export-file, so that's not easy to add, so I won't.

Good idea. Although that might be annoying for people who use a theme on this forum that hasn't got a white background. They will now see a white underscore.
Not sure how many people have that and will be annoyed by that.

I didn't pick it. It was a leftover from a previous poll. I changed it now in the masterlist of screenshots.

Reise der Hoffnung was the Swiss entry in the current World Cup. I expected more voters here. Did people leave it out of their list, because it is Swiss? I thought it was Turkish enough to include it.
That's why I didn't include it, although I thought about it.

Shows how small, and probably obscure in half of it, my list was as so far I haven't seen any of the movies listed. I am certain though that I will have a couple in the top and a few that I would be the only ranker.
